« BackKerry General maternity files to be digitised

Women in Kerry and Cork will be the first to benefit from the digitisation of records held in the country’s maternity hospitals.
Kerry General Hospital
The project to digitise patient records was first proposed in 2008.
The HSE has confirmed that Kerry General Hospital and Cork University Hospital will pilot the scheme early next year. Though patients will not be able to view the records themselves, it will be possible for consultants and medical professionals to share the material.
